Lunar Eclipse Feb ’08 – Montage Images

Well after expecting a cloudy night, we were extremely lucky and the skies partially cleared for almost 2 hours. I still had to shoot through hazy cloud and that was when it was good conditions. A shower of rain caused coats to be thrown over the equipment but we saw right in to totality before the clouds thickened up too much. So a great night, all in all.

I’ve quickly produced this montage of how the eclipse progressed:

A more detailed post to follow, with larger totality image and some of the science stuff too, but for now, I need to go & get some sleep. zz..zz…zz…..zz…zzzzz

    Well done, Anne Marie!

    I got up at 3am to watch (with only my naked eye, in London) and got only a couple of very briefly glimpses through gaps in the cloud – was watching for about 10 minutes and saw the last bit of light at the bottom right, as in the last 2 of your shots in the montage. Then lost to the clouds.

    Still, its the first lunar eclipse I’ve seen 🙂

    So good to see this chart of how it looked in the earlier stages and to see the colour change (which I couldn’t really see)

    Will pop back later to see your other photos.

    That photo montage is incredible. I relaly must visit your part of the world and get some real instruction on how to use my telescope properly.
